C# API to Convert XPS to PS
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("template.xps"); // save XPS as a DOC document.Save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.Doc); // load Doc with an instance of Document var outputDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Ps outputDocument.Save("output.ps", SaveFormat.Ps);
Decrypt XPS File using Owner Password via .NET
Before converting XPS to PS, if you want to decrypt your document you can do it by using the API. In order to decrypt the PDF file, you first need to create a Document object and open the XPS using the owner’s password. After that, you need to call Decrypt method of the Document object. Finally, save the updated file using Save method of the Document object.
Document document = new Document("Decrypt.xps", "password"); // decrypt XPS document.Decrypt(); // save the decrypted document as doc document.Save("Decrypt_out.doc");
Create ReadOnly PS- File via .NET
In order to protect your PS from editing and to prevent other people from editing sensitive and confidential information in your document, you can also set the protection of the document using the API. You can limit the ability to edit a document and only allow certain actions with it. This can be done using Aspose.Words for .NET API. It enables you to control the way you restrict the content using the ProtectionType enumeration parameter. You can set your document to read-only by using the following lines of code.
Document document = new Document("input.doc"); // apply document protection and set protection password doc.Protect(ProtectionType.ReadOnly, "password"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Ps document.Save("output.ps", SaveFormat.Ps);

What is XPS File Format
XPS is a file format that represents a fixed-layout document, which includes document content and print settings. XPS files are based on the XML Paper Specification, which was developed by Microsoft. XPS files are similar to PDF files, but they are not as widely supported by software and hardware.Read More
What is PS File Format
A PostScript file is a text file that contains a description of a page or document to be printed. It is typically created by a word processor or other application, and then saved in the PS format. The file can be printed by any printer that supports the PostScript language.PS files are usually stored in one of two ways: as a single page, or as a multi-page document. Single page PS files are typically used for printing a single page, such as a letter or an invoice. Multi-page PS files are used for printing documents that span multiple pages, such as a book or a report. When a PS file is printed, the printer reads the file and interprets the instructions contained within it. The printer then produces a printed version of the document.PS files are typically much larger than other types of files, such as PDFs. This is because they contain a lot of detailed information about the document to be printed. For this reason, it is important to make sure that your printer has enough memory to store the entire PS file.PS files can be opened and edited with a text editor, such as Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat. However, it is important to be careful when editing a PS file, as even a small change can result in the file being unreadable by the printer. If you need to make changes to a PS file, it is best to save a copy of the file first, so that you can revert back to the original if necessary.Read More
